MAC Cosmetics Semi Precious Collection is So Precious To Me

I confess, MAC overwhelms me sometimes. In August alone they have four new launches. I don’t know about you but that’s a lot for me to keep up with. For now, I’ll tell you about the new MAC Cosmetics Semi Precious collection that hit stores a few weeks ago. For the first time in a long time, I am excited about MAC’s eyeshadows (Blogger’s Obsession collection aside) with this collection. All it took was just one swatch and I was in love.

We can all admire a girl with a 30 – carat diamond. But the NEW dazzle is SEMI PRECIOUS. Gems that are rare in spirit, rich in substance and worn fluidly, on the skin. In M·A·C SEMI PRECIOUS, four finely milled gems- bronzite, black tourmaline, gold pyrite and lilac lepidolite – bring their own earthly and spiritual affluence to three key elements of the mineralize collection: Eye Shadows, Skinfinish and Blush. Setting them off: a collection of colour, two mineralize skincare formulas and four NEW LIMITED-LIFE split fibre brushes. Like everything this precious, these elements start off rare and tend to get rarer… get rich while you can!

Here’s what is in this new collection:

These are swatches of some of the shades I played with. I have yet to wear these shades (that’s coming up though) but Smoked Ruby and Faux Gold had me at hello. Wouldn’t an intense smokey eye with Smoked Ruby just be amazingly stunning? I haven’t had a need for such a look just yet but when I do, better believe I’ll be reaching for this shade.

From Left to Right: Warmth of Coral and Pressed Amber

On the blush front, Warmth of Coral has been a good friend lately. It is my favorite out of all of the blushes. How can you not love this shade? Really…

So have you picked up anything from this collection? Let me know all about it in the comments.

  1. I got the Mineralize Skinfinish in Rose Quartz and I adore it! It can be a little frosty if I get too much of the center mixed in with the rose shade, but I adore it! And the center is a beautiful highlight shade! :]
